Should I?

So I'm going to my first rock concert tonight. Should I bring my knitting needles? The venue's FAQ doesn't mention them on the prohibited items list, but I think my companion might be embarrassed by me working on a pink and white hat at a NIN concert. ;)

Update: I did not bring knitting to the concert. A girl near me had to give up her spiked jewelry because it was a potential weapon, so I doubt I could have gotten my needles through anyway. The show was good, even though Trent's throat was really raspy by the end, making one of the "ballads" he did near the end sound a little off. As usual with theatrical-type events, I was more interested in the tech side, so I spent most of the concert trying to figure out how to build the massive LED curtains that they use to make some really awesome effects. I did learn one lesson... next time I go to a concert, I'm wearing earplugs. I feel a little fuzzy this morning.

I saw NIN a few years ago in New Orleans at the Voodoo Music Festival. They totally rocked.

I know that they don't let knitting needles into the Oakdale (Chevy/Dodge -whatever it is now) theater. I got mine taken away at a Rat Dog show.

I was able to knit during a U2 show last year here in Honolulu. Okay,so I didn't knit during the show, but there was a long intermission between opening act Pearl Jam and U2 and that's where the knitting happened. But it's laid-back Honolulu. No one would question the sharp pointy objects. I did get some funny looks though.

A crochet hook probably would have been safer.
